Tomas Rosicky picked up an injury on international duty

Arsenal star Tomas Rosicky is set to miss the opening weeks of the new season after sustaining an injury while representing the Czech Republic at Euro 2012.

The playmaker signed a new contract with the Gunners last year but the injury on international duty will prevent him from starting the league campaign.

“It will be six to eight weeks until he is back in training,” manager Arsene Wenger said.

“It was his [plantaris tendon]. It was done at the Euros.”
